This is copper. This is bacon. Sad, gray bacon. I wouldn’t eat it.
They can’t all be winners.
I ran across this lovely group of jewelrysmiths via the Rio Grande Facebook page. I don’t know that I will be able to complete a brooch a day, but it seems like a fun thing to try out. It was interesting to me because I’ve spent so much time of late making things that are supposed to look a certain way. I had more creative freedom with this, and I tried some new techniques confident in the knowledge that if the piece didn’t look like I wanted, it was no big deal.
I do think, however, this brooch will get transitioned into a bracelet. And I can do that, because it’s a “do whatever you want” kind of day!
Well, at least the first of two.
I’ve spent the last week and a half jamming to show at my first real live craft fair. That happened today, and I have a lot to say about it, but for right now I’m pretty well burned out.
I do have the energy to spur your interest with a picture, though, so I will. The aforementioned evil beads? Here a complete Kitchen Sink necklace – this one holiday themed.
